The first trailer for Knight of Cups offered some hints as to what Terrence Malick‘s latest would be about, and now an official synopsis reveals more concrete details about the story. And to the surprise of absolutely no one, it sounds very Terrence Malick-y.

Let’s just put all the good-looking, well-established movie star types in one movie. Maybe that’s the secret to success for a financial downturn movie. Adam McKay is writing and directing The Big Short, based on the book written by Michael Lewis of Moneyball fame. The book is the story of “the build-up of the housing and credit bubble of the 2000s,” so it may be quite a departure from McKay’s typical comedies. Brad Pitt‘s company Plan B is producing, and now Pitt is in line to star, along with Christian Bale and Ryan Gosling. Read More »

If you’ve thought over the past couple years that Terrence Malick has been too tied to a specifically contemplative tone and aesthetic, then Knight of Cups could be a partial antidote to feelings taken out of To the Wonder and The Tree of Life. When this film was announced earlier today as one of the Berlin Film Festival selections set to premiere in February, we couldn’t tell you much more than the title and the fact that the film stars Natalie Portman, Cate Blanchett and Christian Bale. Now we’ve got the Knight of Cups trailer, and while this is recognizable as a Malick film, it is also noticeably different than his recent work.
Sure, there’s some of the now-signature Malick aesthetic here, and that reflective voiceover. But as we see Christian Bale playing (apparently) a guy who has lost himself in easy pleasures, there’s also more overt energy here than we’ve seen in Malick’s work over the past couple decades. There’s also that glossy modern LA setting, which isn’t something we’re used to seeing from the director. Check out the trailer below. Read More »

Major spoilers for The Dark Knight Rises throughout
You’ve got to give it to Christopher Nolan. When I saw The Dark Knight Rises, I was pretty confident I knew what happened at the end of the movie. Bruce Wayne fakes his death, fulfills Alfred’s dream of seeing him in Italy, and he passes the mantle of Batman – a symbol – to John Blake. Say what you want about the rest of the movie (and we have) but I still think that ending is fantastic. By far the best thing about the movie.
But like I said, you’ve got to give it to Christopher Nolan. Years later and people are still debating what happened in those final few scenes. Case in point, Christian Bale was doing an interview for Exodus: Gods and Kings and was asked his thoughts on the ending. Listen to The Dark Knight Rises ending explained by Christian Bale below.

When Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice opens in 2016, Ben Affleck will be only the fifth actor to portray the Caped Crusader on the big screen. He’ll also be the first new Batman since Christian Bale‘s reign from 2005-2012, and Bale admits he felt a bit “jealous” seeing his signature role go to someone else at first.
Eventually, though, he came around and even offered Affleck some advice. Hit the jump to read the Christian Bale Ben Affleck comments — plus Emily Blunt‘s response to the Captain Marvel fan-casting.

The first trailers for Ridley Scott‘s new film Exodus: Gods and Kings spent a lot of time on the familiar relationship between Moses (Christian Bale) and Pharaoh Ramses (Joel Edgerton), in order to let us know that this isn’t just another retelling of the story of Exodus as it has been told on the screen before. But that story is definitely here, and this final Exodus trailer opens the floodgates that held back the wrath of God.
This trailer focuses on the darkness that threatens to fall over Egypt if Ramses decides not to free Moses’ people. And we all know how that story plays out. We’ve seen bits of the visualization of the Red Sea in past trailers, and hints of the plagues that beset Egypt, but this trailer offers up a lot more spectacle. Read More »
